Dresden Files

Mike is a vignette in The Dresden Files series by Jim Butcher. It is set between White Night and Small Favor, shortly after the graphic novel Wild Card. It was originally published on Jim Butcher's website on January 7th, 2020 as the first installment of "Dresden Drops", a series of released content throughout 2020 celebrating the 20th anniversary of the release of Storm Front.[1]


Harry Dresden drags his beatup Volkswagen Beetle into Mike Atagi's repair shop. Atagi inquires how the car got into its current state but is much happier with a non-magical but false story Dresden provides rather than the true story. The two then discuss the repair with Atagi informing Dresden that of cheap, fast, or good, he can only pick two. Dresden picks cheap and good and Mike remarks that "That's you, all right."
